> Reform in engineering education has become an object of intense  
> interest and
> desire in countries throughout the world.  What is at stake in the  
> contents
> of education for engineers, and for whom?
>
> This first workshop of the International Network for Engineering  
> Studies
> (INES), sponsored by the U.S. National Science Foundation and  
> Virginia Tech,
> will bring together researchers on the history, social and cultural  
> studies,
> and philosophy of engineering education to address these questions by
> placing them in wider historical and cultural contexts.
>
> How have the social, political, and epistemological issues involved in
> locating engineers varied across space and time?  What have been key
> struggles in different countries?  What have been the implications of
> outcomes in engineering education for emerging national identities  
> as well
> as transnational projects ranging from industrial capitalism to
> globalization?  What have been the implications of engineering  
> education for
> emerging sciences and technologies? What relations have emerged  
> between what
> counts as engineering and who counts as engineers, including
> disproportionate demographic distributions by race and sex?
>
>  This three-day workshop will employ a unique format of focused  
> discussion
> around 16-18 previously-drafted papers in order both to bring together
> researchers working on these topics in different countries and to  
> identify
> critical issues and opportunities for further research.  The  
> workshop will
> provide travel subsidies and defray local expenses for participants
> contributing manuscripts.  The NSF award includes travel and local  
> expenses
> for up to four Ph.D. students from other U.S. institutions, including
> students who are not contributing manuscripts but would otherwise  
> benefit
> from attending, and with special encouragement to students from
> underrepresented minorities.
>
> Plans for dissemination include a coordinated set of publications  
> in 3-4
> journals, web-based video/audio streaming and transcripts to inform  
> scholars
> not able to participate, and an edited book collection.
>
> See the workshop website for more detailed information:

>
> The International Network for Engineering Studies was born in  
> August 2004 in
> Paris, France, and currently has more than 160 members.  The  
> organization
> has three purposes:  (a) to advance research in historical, social,
> cultural, and philosophical studies of engineers and engineering;  
> (b) to
> build a visible international community of researchers interested in
> engineering studies; and (c) to draw upon research in engineering  
> studies to
> contribute to public discussions and debates about engineering  
> education and
> policy.
>
> INES expects to hold a second workshop in Taiwan in Fall 2007  
> around the
> topic of engineers and the workplace and a third workshop in  
> Portugal in
> Fall 2008 (prior to SHOT 2008) around the topic of engineers and  
> technology.
>
> INES members also work collaboratively within and between existing
> professional societies to advance work in engineering studies.
>
> An INES website is forthcoming.
